Unfortunately, you may have to reset your Tablet back to factory settings or set it back to the factory values. Meaning, you are deleting all the contents on your Tablet since that you cannot recall the password and the email address you have set. Reset varies from the manufacturer of the unit you own, you can try the generic steps on how to reset or by using a PC suite. But then again, it would still depend from your Tablet manufacturer.

The generic reset for Android tablets:

1. Shut down your Tablet first / turn off

2. Please try any of the following that you need to press and hold

Press then Hold Volume Up then Power

Press then Hold Volume Down then Power

Press then Hold Volume Up then Home button and Power

Press and Hold Volume Down then Home button and power

Wait until you feel a vibration and let go of the power button and continue holding the other buttons until you get the menu for recovery.

3. Select the Wipe data / Reset and select on YES to start. Use the volume keys for navigation, then use power or the home button

4. After the reset, select: restart to boot the Tablet back and it will be on default values.

Here is also an example of a phone/Tablet being reset using a PC suit or PC Companion. These steps were taken from an Xperia phone, but can be applied to a Sony Tablet and may not be the same exact steps if you are not using a Sony Tablet. This would be a reinstall of the firmware, but an equivalent of Hard Reset to some other products

1. Install the PC Suit or PC companion on your PC or Laptop

2. Turn off the Tablet

3. Launch the PC Suit on your computer

4. Once you have the PC program up on Screen, click on the support zone. Click the start

5. Select the software update from the menu.

6. Click Next or continue, then select the model of your device then continue.

7. Press the volume down and connect the Tablet via USB

8. Wait for the process on your phone screen till it is done updating. Once the update has been completed take the USB cable out of the Tablet then power it up. It may take a couple of minutes and wait

All of what you added and install on the Tablet will be deleted and in order for you to have them back is to re-download them or restore if you have a backup.

How to reset password without wiping and losing all data

If Google Accounts Recovery methods mentioned in the VisiHow article can't get you access then sadly you will have to hard reset. In the future, transfer important files to a cloud program or an external hard drive on a regular basis if you must use a pin lock.

One thing you could do is remove the battery for a soft reset but that depends on how difficult it is to access the battery. Still worth a try if you do not want to lose your data.

I wanted to remove my current password?

Hi! thanks for the offer, I think my tablet is fine now,because its rebooting. Thanks

I am glad VisiHow was able to solve your issue with your tablet!

I input my Google account details and they are wrong. what should I do since someone tried my pattern several times until the tablet demanded to sign in with Google account?

My tablet now demands to sign in with Google account but the details I input seem to be wrong every time. This is after someone input a wrong pattern to unlock many times.

You can use Google Accounts Recovery. There is an option in there for them to email you a new password. Use that to change your unlock pattern.
